… xpanding. xciting.
Cheating I know (exercising creative license I like to think) but xylophones and x-rays don’t really feature in day to day life!

    Your’e kidding, xylophones don’t feature in your every day life?! Great pick, must be exciting and nerve-racking in about equal measure.

      Ooh, how exciting! My youngest grandchild has just started school, so my Daughter, Emma is suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome and has to keep busy all the time.

    I can not believe you are already on x – not an easy letter!

    Janet – we’re far enough along now that the nerves have left us and we’re just very excited now (although all this expanding is rather uncomfortable!)

    Joanna – xxxx always welcome – this little one will certainly be smothered in them

    Lynne – I love babies but there’s something very special about watching loved ones growing up and getting more curious and developing their own personality. I bet you have lots of smile making conversations with your granddaughter.

    Greg – tricky indeed, hence the creative license with spelling. Looking forward to your x further down the line – thinking of a word is one thing but illustrating it, quite something else. xtraordinary would be my suggestion for you :o)

    Shaheen – lots of happy faces here too :o)

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.Ā  Spectacular.Ā  It's worth checkingĀ tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
